- The ski clinic was held this morning. It only cost $10.
The class was sponsored by Mel's Trading Post and the School District of Rhinelander Community Education Program
This is the second year they've held the class. More than 20 went this year.
"They're learning some," said ski instructor Shane Tulowitzky. "We're moving onto the hills section a little bit to talk about how to snowplow, how to get back up hills. So we're just right now working on balance."
Organizers want to give people a healthy way to enjoy the Northwoods during the long winters.
"This week there's really no racing going on, but every other weekend throughout the winter there's ski racing going on in Northern Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula, so there's a lot to do," said Tulowitzky.
Many people think of cross country skiing as a lifetime sport. Organizers hope to get people started with the sport at a young age.
